Notes/Commercial Description:
E is definitely not a Belgian IPA - it's a funky version of Edward (american pale ale) - fermented with brettanomyces, dry hopped with galaxy, and aged on stainless for four months. Basically, we refer to it as a farmhouse pale ale - a cross between a saison and an american pale.

2012 Release: Aged in Mimosa barrels.
2014 Release: Aged in wine barrels with resident yeast and microfloa for 1.5 years.

Pours a murky golden-orange with a rocky, one-inch, off-white head embedded with tiny craters. Big brett nose on this beer - horse blanket, bandaids and a hint of citrus. Taste follows nose; however, there's less of a brett character in the flavor profile. There's also a bit more citrus as well as what I perceive to be chamomile. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a soft carbonation and some astringency. Overall, a decent beer; however, the brett is a bit too much on the palate.

From 05/19/14 notes. A refreshing break from stouts during our BCS mega-tasting. 2014 release. 750ml bottle poured into my Lost Abby stemware.

a - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with one finger of fluffy off white head and high carbonation evident. Looks nice.

s - The nose is amazing. Smells of loads of brett, citrus hops, pineapples, earthy notes, floral hops, oranges, white wine, tart citrus and tart jams. Amazing nose, I'm loving it.

t - Tastes of brett, citrus hops, fruity malts, light pepper and spice, light tropical fruits, lightly soured fruits and white wine, oak, and earthy malts. Taste is very good, though not as great as the nose.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Crisp and refreshing, very easy to drink.

o - Overall a very good beer; I love Edward and this might be even better. Lots of brett, citrus, and tropical notes in the nose which is fantastic, and it is easy to drink. I could smell this all day, worth seeking out.
